Dynasty Filly Lands River Retez Stakes

Ridgemont Highlands’ deceased top sire Dynasty dominated Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday, where his three graded stakes winners included G1 Vodacom Durban July winner Belgarion, and the July winning champion enjoyed further black type success at Kenilworth on Sunday.

Bred by Highlands Stud, the Brett Crawford trained Sing Out Loud has now earned R173 250.

Sing Out Loud, one of 71 stakes winners for her brilliant sire, is out of the four time G1 winning A.P. Indy mare Super Singer. The latter, a half-sister to the Unbridled’s Song sired G1 winner Magnificent Song, was produced by the Storm Cat matron Song To Remember.
